Excellent answers above. The motors are the major difference the 3HP Shaper has a motor designed for all day use, every day. The router would burn up trying to keep up.

Just like with router bits there are good quality shaper cutters, and some not so great. Buy better grade cutters, and off you go. Back when I had need of a Shaper I had good luck with LRH, CMT, Freud, and Amana cutters.
